Hedo Turkoglu announced his retirement on Friday.

Turkoglu tried to pursue another NBA contract this summer, but the market for the 36-year-old-forward was nonexistent. He had a brilliant 15-year NBA career with averages of 11.1 points, 4.0 boards, 2.8 assists and 1.2 3-pointers per game and is now expected to work closely with the Turkish Basketball Federation.

Hedo Turkoglu is not interested in signing overseas as he is still looking for another NBA contract.

Turkoglu reportedly wanted to latch on with the Kings, but that report was later shot down. Turkoglu is well past his prime and wouldn't have more than a limited role at this point in his career, so he is not on the fantasy radar.

The Kings reportedly have no interest in signing Hedo Turkoglu.

This would make a lot more sense than the team actually signing him, so we'll let you know if anything changes on this front.

Hedo Turkoglu wants to sign with the Kings.

He is at 997 career games and wants to get to 1,000. Vlade Divac is getting the band back together with Peja Stojakovic and Bobby Jackson in the front office, so it makes sense to add Hedo in that regard. It's still unknown if this group can be a winning basketball team in 2015.

Doc Rivers said that Hedo Turkoglu sprained his ankle during Game 3, but he should be fine.

"I didn't know a guy who moved that slow could sprain his ankle," said Rivers of Turkoglu. "It shouldn't slow him down." Through the first three games of the series, Turkoglu has scored a total of two points to go with two rebounds and one steal. There's no fantasy value to be had here.

Hedo Turkoglu not only started for Matt Barnes (hamstring) on Wednesday, but racked up a season-high 19 points, two rebounds, two assists and five 3-pointers on 7-of-12 shooting in 33 minutes.

Whoa. It's nice to see that Turk can still play and he could have another big game or two if Barnes continues to sit. Turk also started on Tuesday, but scored just six points.

Hedo Turkoglu made a rare start for Matt Barnes (hamstring) on Tuesday, but he scored only six points on a pair of 3-pointers, with two boards, one assist and one block.

Turkoglu also turned the ball over twice in 21 minutes. The Clippers next game comes Wednesday in Sacramento, but there's also a chance that L.A. will shelve Barnes to avoid any setbacks -- Doc Rivers said he's looking into signing another SF, so there's a real chance Turkoglu will get a few more starts.

Hedo Turkoglu will start Tuesday's game in place of Matt Barnes (hamstring).

Turkoglu is shooting 43.2 percent from downtown this season and Doc Rivers likely wants him to spread the court in lieu of Barnes. The 15-year veteran is only worth a look for temporary value in deep leagues.

Hedo Turkoglu (stomach virus) will not play against the Raptors on Friday.

He is not at the arena for the game against one of his former teams. Turkoglu has seen his minutes drop recently and only played two minutes on Thursday, so there shouldn't be many tweaks to coach Doc Rivers' rotation.

Clippers sign G/F Hedo Turkoglu.

It's expected to be a one-year deal and it will bring the Clippers to 14 on their roster. Turkoglu wasn't very effective with the team last year, but he could get minutes with the team dumping Jared Dudley's contract.
Fri, Sep 12, 2014 07:30:00 PM

The Clippers and Hedo Turkoglu are reportedly nearing agreement on a one-year, $1.4 million contract.

Turkoglu hasn't posted an above-average Player Efficiency Rating since the 2007-08 season and he's been particularly dreadful since 2012, but coach Doc Rivers obviously thinks he can bounce back at age 35. He'll fill a small role off the Clippers' bench and fantasy owners are advised to shun him.
Sun, Aug 31, 2014 10:13:00 PM

Hedo Turkoglu (back) will not play in Game 3 on Friday and updating an earlier report he is targeting a return in Game 5.

Turkoglu's presence is actually somewhat important for a Clippers unit forced to play Jared Dudley and Glen Davis. He suffered a hairline fracture in his back and at his age and mileage he'll be very questionable to suit up.
Fri, May 9, 2014 09:04:00 PM

Hedo Turkoglu (bruised lower back) will miss at least Games 1 and 2 of the Clippers' second-round matchup vs. Portland.

Turkoglu's return date is up in the air and may lead to more playing time for Danny Granger and Jared Dudley, though they combined to play just three minutes in the Clippers' Game 7 victory on Saturday.
Mon, May 5, 2014 01:40:00 PM

Hedo Turkoglu's bruised lower back will sideline him during Game 6 on Thursday.

Turkoglu has given the Clippers a bit of perimeter firepower in under 10 minutes per game during the postseason, and his absence should mean a few extra minutes for Jared Dudley and Matt Barnes. He was expected to have an MRI but the results have not yet been disclosed, so for now we're considering him day-to-day.
